Nation of Gods and Earths: Then

The Nation of Gods and Earths is an Islamic religious organization founded in the 1960s by former Nation of Islam member Clarence 13X. Adherents are known as the “Five Percenters” and their philosophy is based on the belief that black people are the original people of the planet Earth, making Black people the fathers (Gods) and mothers (Earths) of human civilization.
